Making Gift Giving Even Easier
The GiveGab team dedicates time each month to respond to our customer’s feedback and create impactful, robust additions to the GiveGab Fundraising Suite.
We invite you to check out the updates from June 2021.
Giving Days are online fundraising challenges (24 hours or longer) that bring communities and campuses together to raise awareness and funds for different initiatives.
As Giving Days grow, so do social media feeds because we know that creating buzz helps boost donations and unite communities. To provide an even better experience for users on your Giving Day site, we have redesigned our live social media feed powered by Tagboard.
Bringing a cleaner look to your Giving Day homepage, this new update will show a maximum of 20 posts instead of populating an infinite number to scroll through. Site visitors will now be able to easily navigate to the bottom of your site, giving them better access to quick links in your footer. Users will still be able to select a “load more” button to enjoy social media posts and follow along with what participants and fans are sharing about their favorite Giving Day.
Be the philanthropic leader for your community by providing a centralized website that serves as a verified nonprofit directory for year-round awareness, engagement, and giving with Philanthropy Hub.
We know that collecting customized data is essential and that it is often used to inform your organization internally about donor behavior and campaign success. We are excited to announce the addition of several new visibility settings within Philanthropy Hub. Our new visibility settings will allow you to hide specific fields on your internal editing dashboard for users depending on their level of administrative access.
Additionally, you will now have the ability to select which fields you wish to show or hide on your public-facing site. Each new visibility setting provides more flexibility to help you customize and manage your data. This allows you to continue to collect information that will help inform your organization’s decision-making.
Donation Forms empower you to create completely custom and embeddable forms for collecting donations, registrations, and RFIs (Requests For Information) integrated into your website.
Stewarding Your Donors
Making the donation experience simple and efficient is one of our top priorities. Having an easy checkout process helps ensure that donors complete their transactions and builds trust to cultivate repeat giving. To continue making our checkout process more efficient, we have reordered our Donation Forms’ ‘Payment Details’ section.
This update will better match more general online payment workflows that most donors experience on other websites and mobile applications. The new donation flow will ask donors to select their payment type (i.e., Credit Card, Checking Account, etc.) first, fill out their billing information second, and enter their payment information third.
Our reorganized Donation Forms keep your steps the same, while putting the data they collect in an even better order for your donors
- Our new “Sandbox” tool allows you to create custom test sections without having to add them to your live site in the Landing Page Builder. Once you’re satisfied with what you have built in the testing phase, you can easily move the sections to your live site for all to see.
- Keeping your administrative tools easy to manage, we have clarified the role of the ‘Ongoing Stop Date’ feature to make sure no recurring charges will be made to donors and/or registrants after your set date.
GiveGab platform updates and enhancements will be announced monthly and made available on the GiveGab blog.
